    The founder of the conservative group Freedom Watch filed a lawsuit against the Republican National Committee and chairman Reince Priebus on Thursday, accusing the national party of “conspiring to defraud” GOP primary voters. The lawsuit, filed by conservative activist Larry Klayman, also targets the Republican Party of Florida and Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, alleging that party leaders have colluded to deprive Donald Trump of his victory in the Sunshine State.

    Nevada’s chief federal judge Tuesday for the second time refused to let nationally known conservative lawyer Larry Klayman join Cliven Bundy’s defense team. ... The judge’s ruling will be legally challenged on an expedited basis,” he said. “It violates Cliven Bundy’s Sixth Amendment constitutional right to counsel and forces Cliven to forfeit his right to a speedy trial. “The ruling demonstrates that the judge has an extra-judicial bias and prejudice against Cliven Bundy and his counsel, for which disqualification is required.

    A Nevada judge has refused to let a nationally known conservative lawyer join Cliven Bundy’s defense team because of ongoing disciplinary proceedings against him in Washington, D.C. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro wrote in a three-page order that she didn't think Larry Klayman has been candid about the outcome of the disciplinary proceedings. Klayman disclosed in court documents that no disciplinary action had been taken and the proceedings would likely soon be resolved in his favor, which Navarro said was “misleading and incomplete.” Navarro ruled that Klayman can reapply to represent Bundy if he...

    Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman is suing President Obama and members of Congress over a deal on Iran’s nuclear program that he claims flies in the face of the Constitution. The lawsuit, Klayman says, aims to block both the treaty and the “unconstitutional” law that Congress passed to guarantee a review of the multinational nuclear accord. The White House and Congress “gave away, abrogated and undermined [Klayman’s] constitutional rights, putting him in danger, including the protections inherent in the Constitution requiring a two-thirds vote to ratify a treaty,” he said in the lawsuit. Under the Constitution, two-thirds of the Senate...

    Oops, your metadata is showing. Is the Government violating your Constitutional rights by intercepting your “metadata” without a warrant? The Government is collecting information about your phone calls, text messages, and email messages -- indiscriminately. Metadata is transmission and billing information about whom you called, from what phone number, when, and for how long. This can include your location, because billing records note which cell tower your mobile phone is connecting through. George Orwell’s book 1984 was meant as a warning. But it is shocking how many people view 1984 as a “how to” manual or blueprint for expanding their...

But if Congress doesn't act, the additional tax will return for the 2006 tax year. Originally designed to make sure wealthy individuals paid some tax, the alternative minimum tax reaches further into the middle class every year as inflation pushes more and more people...

    Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger – now the target of an FBI probe – was a key part of a deal the Clinton administration made to secure an illegal $300,000 contribution from the communist Chinese government, one of a number of instances in the 1990s in which he was blamed for security breaches. "Sandy Berger has misused sensitive information in the past," Larry Klayman, who investigated the Chinagate scandal while chairman of Judicial Watch, told WorldNetDaily. Klayman, now a U.S. Senate candidate from Florida, led the probe that triggered exposure of an illegal contribution made to Clinton through former...

    MIAMI -- Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate have helped run up a record federal deficit, haven't made tough budget cuts, and failed President Bush. Larry Klayman says he's someone who would be a "true" Republican in Washington who wouldn't go along simply because he was in the majority party. "I support the president, but I think he's gotten bad advice and he's going along with the Senate leadership who wanted to hand out all these goodies," said Klayman, who's running for the GOP Senate nomination. Klayman, 52, said he can help the president by coming to the Senate as...

    [Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch was lead away in handcuffs for saying his cat was NOT a bomb] According to another waiting passenger nearby, Klayman told the screeners that the cat wasn't a terrorist and didn't have a bomb. With that, we're told, he was instantly taken out of line by the security people and put in handcuffs. He was then apparently taken somewhere for questioning, where agents most likely didn't recognize him or realize that he was famous. He was eventually released, and he hopped a later flight. "It wasn't a funny joke," Klayman said last week, rejecting our...

    MIAMI - A former campaign staffer has sued U.S. Senate candidate Larry Klayman, claiming the Miami attorney slandered him with an accusation that he stole campaign documents. Klayman denies the allegations by consultant Paul Rolf Jensen and says he's the target of "dirty tricks" by former New Hampshire Sen. Bob Smith, a rival in the Florida Republican primary. Smith spokesman Peter Schweitzer acknowledged that Smith and Jensen are friends but said the consultant is not on the campaign staff. "Senator Smith doesn't play political dirty tricks," Schweitzer said. Klayman hired Jensen in August but Jensen quit in October over a...

    Does a nod of political support count if it comes in the men's room? Sure, says Florida Republican Senate candidate Larry Klayman. It happened recently when he was in Miami. Klayman, known for his Judicial Watch suits against former President Clinton and President Bush, was washing up inside the bathroom at a general-aviation terminal when, he says, Gov. Jeb Bush walked in. "Hi, Larry," Klayman hears. "I wish you well." Turns out the two are longtime acquaintances; Bush even tried to find Klayman office space back in 1995 when he was in real estate. "He never found the space I...

    WASHINGTON — Maybe someone out there knows what Sen. Bob Graham is going to do now that his presidential campaign has ended and his Senate seat is up for grabs in 2004. But the odds are that the only people who have a strong sense of Graham's next step are his wife, Adele, and his four daughters. After all, this is the same man who announced his decision on the presidency last week on CNN's "Larry King Live" to the shock of many members of his senior campaign staff. Graham spokesman Paul Anderson still expects his decision on the Senate...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — What do Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney, Osama bin Laden and Fidel Castro have in common? Each has been sued by Larry Klayman. The prosecutor-turned-watchdog also has brought cases against Iraq, the State Department, the Teamsters — even his mother. Now, after nearly a decade of legal activism, Klayman is turning his attention to politics. He has entered the race for the Republican nomination for the Florida Senate seat held by Bob Graham, who ended his Democratic presidential bid this week. "I want to take the fight for honesty, the fight for ethics, inside the U.S....

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Larry Klayman, chairman of the anti-corruption watchdog organization Judicial Watch, has joined the race for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat held by White House wannabe Bob Graham. "I will be the conservative antidote for Hillary Clinton," he said. "I will be her worst nightmare." His campaign will focus on security, corruption and government waste, he said in advance of his formal announcement, scheduled for today in Tampa. "We have an urgent need here because we have 1,800 miles of coastline. And we are very high on the target list of terrorists," said...

    Legal gadfly Larry Klayman has resigned as chairman of Judicial Watch to seek the Republican Senate nomination in Florida. He has contacted GOP consultants to enlist their services for his forthcoming primary campaign, well-placed sources said. His formal announcement is scheduled for Tuesday in Tampa. Klayman, whose conservative legal foundation that has been a perpetual thorn in the sides of politicians of all stripes, has sued almost everyone from presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton to Osama bin Laden. Judicial Watch, which Klayman founded in 1994, would not comment yesterday on the candidacy or resignation, and the potential candidate...

    Republican Larry Klayman, well-known in Washington for his relentless pursuit of the Clintons during the 1990s and more recently for suing Vice President Dick Cheney, has decided he will join an already-crowded race for the U.S. Senate in Florida. Klayman said he will seek the seat now occupied by Democrat Bob Graham, who is running for president but has not ruled out returning to the Senate for a fourth term.
